There’s only a week left until the builders arrive and the people building our studio, on the same day. That’s timing for you.
I have moments of blind panic when I think of the logistics of all the furniture we have to shift and pile up in the two rooms that aren’t being touched and then when I get over that, I remember the stuff in the loft which has to come down and be stored in those rooms too… urrrgggh!
Oh and don’t forget this build will be going on for six months, so those summer clothes (where are they again?) need to be accessible and not trapped behind a sofa, or something.
We visited the council this week and paid the £195 fee for them to consider lifting the clause on our planning that says our windows must be a “subdued” colour (ie not white) and the £26 fee for them to approve the outside finish of the house. I’m hopeful we will get the stamp of approval, otherwise we have to go back and apply and pay again.
So until the work begins I thought you’d like a “before” tour…
